Yes, but AIS firewall....i guess, used to be....an exception to this rule.

If an Avast! dialog window is telling you this is a problem, then yes, by all means turn off the Windows FW.

Ok, maybe your Windows security center is being mentally handicapped (wouldn't be the first time this has happened)

Look, just to avoid problems, leave one firewall on, turn the other off.  Which one is up to you.  There is nothing bad or insecure about turning off Windows firewall as long as you have another installed and running.

When the avast firewall was being developed the avast developers spent time at the Microsoft Campus in Redmond to ensure that it would be compatible with the windows firewall.

However, that can't always be guaranteed, I don't know if any windows update might make changes to the windows firewall functionality, etc. So you should base any decision on known/seen effect between the two in this case rather than a general rule.

Many third party firewalls actually disable the windows firewall when installed.
